An explosion went off in a car in Gaza City on Saturday, and rescue officials said at least two people were wounded. Police called on people in the area to leave, for fear an explosive device might be inside the incinerated GMC Safari. It was not clear whether the wounded were inside or outside the vehicle when the blast occurred. The car was traveling near Islamic University, a stronghold of the ruling Hamas party, when it blew up near a traffic light. Separately, another blast ripped through a vehicle east of Gaza City, but the terror operatives inside the car escaped before it blew up, Palestinian security officials said. The IDF said it was looking into both reports.
